Sellanious Caesar Posted April 15, 2014 Share Posted April 15, 2014 (edited) More hotels are on are tap for Houston — this time in the Energy Corridor.To meet the growing needs of the West campus of the Texas Medical Center and the Energy Corridor, Western International purchased 5.2 acres at the corner of Barker-Cypress Road and Park Row to build a Courtyard by Marriott and a Hampton Inn Suites by Hilton. The Dallas-based company purchased the property, which is part of a site known as Ten Oaks, from Houston-based Wolff Cos. for an undisclosed amount.“The strong growth of the Energy Corridor coupled with the expansions of the Texas Medical Center – West Campus make the Ten Oaks site an ideal location to meet the growing demand for lodging in the area,” Michael Mahoney, president of Western International, said in a statement.Each hotel will have 135 rooms and is slated to break ground this summer.Hotel construction is booming in Houston. The Marriott Marquis, which will have 1,000 rooms, broke ground downtown on April 11 to help accommodate more convention business, and TRC Capital Partners and Houston-based Medistar Corp. announced earlier this month that they will develop and own a 250-room hotel at 6750 Main St. in the Medical Center.Western International already had a presence in the Energy Corridor, having developed the Residence Inn in Wolff Cos.’ Park 10 development and the Marriott Hotel at Interstate 10 and Park Ten Boulevard.http://bizjournals.com/houston/blog/breaking-ground/2014/04/two-more-hotels-to-rise-in-the-energy-corridor.html Edited April 15, 2014 by Sellanious Caesar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
